HOLY COW!!!!!!!!!!

My most sincere apologies for not updating the blog last week.......

My most sincere apologies for the brevity of this post....................

My most sincere apologies for not replying to comments...............

Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful momma!

I do hope you all will understand last week, and this past Mother's Day weekend have been BEYOND really busy and hectic, and there wasn't a computer to be found anywhere for me to update the blog? Thanks for understanding that I do have other things on my plate.  I ASSURE each of you who have sent blocks in, as well as goodies WILL get your shout out!  I PROMISE!!!!!!!  Man, OH MAN, have there been some awesome goodies sent in!

And, there are some REALLY EXCITING things going on right now with the block drive......

We are gearing up to have our first work/sew day on all of these blocks!

  Me and several of our Quilt of Valor, Eastern Missouri leaders, along with Kelly, the owner of O'Sewpersonal Fabric Shop were interviewed by the local Fox affiliate.

Kelly was so gracious to allow us to be interviewed in her beautiful shop!

Me with Jackie, Linda, and Jean, leaders of Quilts of Valor, Eastern Missouri.
I promise an update soon Jean!!!!! LOL

Hold please..............Kevin the Quilter will be updating the blog and block drive soon.................

Thanks for all of the encouragement!
Kevin the Quilter


  1. Keep up the great job Kevin! Quilters are amazing. I took my first trip to the Oso landslide area and delivered over 180 quilts that were donated. I am heading back up Thursday with handmade fleece blankets a guild sent and another 100 or so. We still are collecting quilts for the National Guard and the fire fighters that were in the area for so long! Great job you are doing for those still serving!

  2. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I've decided to send backing fabrics instead of blocks. Hope that's okay.

  3. Holy Cow!!!! Just a bit more than 3-8 quilts worth! What a great thing you started here. I'll be getting backing fabric out to you soon. I just need to find time to get to the post office. Woohoo!

  4. The stacks of blocks!!! Fabulous. and that quilt shop... I LOVE the wall color - I. Must. Visit!!!

  5. Look at those stacks of blocks!!! Hope you and your mom enjoyed a wonderful mothers day weekend :)

  6. That's quite a stack of blocks! Hope you get a chance to catch your breath in the next few days. Sounds like you are running flat out and then some.

  7. Wow! And you thought you were just doing a simple block drive. Well done!

  8. You are doing a great job Kevin! It's hard to imagine 4,000+ blocks!!! You have inspired us all!

  9. A little request thrown out to quilters and WATCH OUT!!! I am so excited!!! I'm also really glad to hear you say this was shot at a quilt shop because if it was your quilting room I was going to have issues!!!

  10. 61 blocks mailed today :0) on the way to you and your elves to sew together and make into quilts!
    Congratulations Kevin! YOU are doing a wonderful thing for our service people.

    Happy Sewing

  11. Very cool and OMG! - that's a whole lot of blocks. What a wonderful thing you are doing. Anxious to see the interview!

  12. That's amazing to see all those blocks stacked up like that. What a great response from quilters! I think your choice of such a simple graphic block is also responsible for such a large outpouring. Everyone can make this block. In fact, I need to get back to working on mine before I miss your deadline!

  13. You were pretty funny expecting to get enough blocks to make 3 quilt presentations! I'm just thrilled that you have had such a great outpouring of support. I would love to see you on FOX. Congratulations!

  14. Congratulations and enjoy the outpouring of love and support. Creative QOV Bliss...

  15. Are there even that many veterans living in the state of Missouri for all of those quilts??? Hopefully by now, you've gotten quilt blocks to represent all 50 states. Such an awesome drive. If anyone has a link to the Fox interview, please post it.

  16. My friend, Kevin, the celebrity :*) So glad all is going so well with the QOV Drive! And even more glad that you have lots of help getting all those quilts sewn up and delivered LOL!!! PS - Tell your mom she is lovely :*)

  17. Congratulations Kevin on all you have done!! I knew you were pretty special!
